Sean’s amazing playlist

Sean’s amazing playlist

mood_aberdeen.gifTucking into the mega opus “Mood Aberdeen” created by Sean Wilke for Nick’s 40th birthday.

It’s a huge thing, more than fifteen hours of solid jazz, expertly intertwining the classics with the obscure. Am currently in “Fitdee”. Thanks again Sean:-)

There’s a man out there who can’t listen to jazz anymore… I’m adding the playlist below to cheer him up.
